The Long History of Militant Islam

"The ambassador answered us that...it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise."

Fascism: A Bipartisan Affliction

You're Either With Trump, Or Against Him

So U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan thinks Donald Trump's comments about the Mexican heritage of a federal judge hearing a civil case against him are an example of "textbook racism," but he won't rescind his endorsement of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee?

Censorship Is More Dangerous Than Hate Speech

Someone needs to tell Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, YouTube and the European Union that the only way to stop a bad guy's speech is to counter it with a good guy's speech, not censor it.

But especially this one! With this one, the narrative changes faster than the score of a Wiffle Ball game played with aluminum bats. It's an election with the attention span of high-speed lint.
